ODYSSEAS MUSIC JOURNEY
The art of memory...
According to a worldwide research by BBC Culture, themed "fictional stories which have shaped mindsets or influenced history", the "Odyssey" topped the list, as the masterpiece of all times. There have been many readings of the "Odyssey". A homecoming, a sea fairytale of the adventures of the hero, a political tragedy, acomedy with follies, an erotic drama, a tragedy of forgetting. There is no correct reading; they are all a comprehensive, unique whole. This makes it unique and special. This gives it elements of universality. The "Musical Journey Following Odysseus' Steps" is a melodic representation of the Mediterrenean from port to port, from island to island, sailing along the stops of Homer's "Odyssey". Famous, accomplished contemporary musicians, that come from the stops of Odysseus' journey, are inspired by the Homeric myth, by the natural scenery and the musical tradition of their homeland and, as modern homerians, create an original, multicultural piece or work: the "Musical Journey Following Odysseus' Steps", along with a musical CD, a multi-language documentary and the holding of a musical festival.
